Two-time track and field Olympian Lolo Jones helped Team USA defend their world championship title Sunday as part of the women’s bobsled event in St. Moritz, Switzerland. Jones teamed with Elana Myers to place fourth in the women’s two-person bobsled and help Team USA to the overall championship in an event that combined men’s skeleton, women’s bobsled, women’s skeleton and men’s two-man bobsled.
After qualifying for her second Olympic team in London in 2012 in the women’s 100-meter hurdles, Jones shifted her attention to the winter sport of bobsled where she competes as a push athlete. On the track, Jones is a two-time Word Indoor champion and the American indoor record holder in the 60m hurdles.
Team USA claimed their second consecutive world championship title by 0.24 seconds with a combined time of 4:31.29 Sunday.
